FLORESVILLE -- Residents will notice some big changes when it comes to properties owned by the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC), after the corporation passed resolutions during an April 15 regular meeting to alleviate the corporation from the burden of operating facilities such as The Beer Warehouse.
FEDC Treasurer Jason Talley said during the meeting that he doesn’t believe the corporation should be in the business of leasing buildings.
“My thought is our name has the word economic development in it,” Talley said. “Once we get this all sorted through, we really ought to get busy seeking and recruiting and getting people to do business with us. I would agree with my colleagues.
“When you look at the numbers, they speak for themselves,” Talley continued. “Since 2006, the total amount of rent was $20,240. The total amount of expenditures shows $22,113, but that doesn’t include the acquisition cost of buying the facility and getting it up and going ... We’re losing money on the building. We don’t need to be losing money on the facility. It’s a great little facility, maybe someone will acquire it and do something with it.”
Board Secretary Mary Helen Tieken voiced it more concisely.
“Sell it,” she said. “Let’s find someone to buy it.”
In addition to The Beer Warehouse, the FEDC also voted to sell a 2-acre tract of land on which a house is located in the Rancho Grande Industrial Park, and to deed Canta Rana Park -- adjacent to the wastewater treatment facility -- over to the city of Floresville.
“People have made the comment, ‘How can we go there and enjoy a picnic? We’re right next to a sewer plant,’” said FEDC Interim Executive Director Raymond “Ram” Ramirez about Canta Rana Park. “I think the city is willing to ... take it over. I think that will be fine.”
“They can use it for a possible park or for city usage or something like that,” said board Vice President Andy Eubanks.
Also during the meeting, the FEDC board:
•Hired City Engineer Larry Heimer’s firm, Bury+Partners, to work on future progress at the Rancho Grande Industrial Park, following receipt of an entrance permit from TxDOT
•Tabled items, including a recommendation for a 6-acre tract at the Rancho Grande Industrial Park to be purchased by Laredo Hydro Tec, a recommendation on railroad depot property, and the possibility of deeding the skate park on A Street to the city of Floresville
•Heard a presentation from Jeff Bowers on behalf of Talisman Energy regarding a mineral rights lease in the Rancho Grande Industrial Park.
Editor’s note: Read one opinion about former FEDC Executive Director Jesse Perez on page 8A.
In attendance: Interim Executive Director Raymond “Ram” Ramirez; and members Jason Talley, Andy Eubanks, Mary Helen Tieken, Ray Lamberth, and Mike Herry.

Hey Fred, didn't you mention the Colonel and the beer warehouse in your article? I see you failed to mention that it has been a bad investment for the past 6 years the Col was here. Losing money every year. How can you say this Babo did something good for this town. If your a Hondo citizen, I would start questioning this new guy you just hired. Just ask the folks here in Floresville about ole Jesse Perez.
